Uyghur (United) people, an ancient Turkish people accepted Islam in the Tenth century and have made great contributions to Islamic civilization. They have been wrongly portrayed as violent extremists. In actuality, they are seeking justice, independence and peace! Only Allah knows their patience under the suffering inflicted upon them in the last few centuries. May Almighty Allah empower them and return them to their former dignity and respect. Look at the unique design of the minarets in the Masjid of Turpan in Xinjiang province. Surely Allah has power over all affairs and will hear the prayers of the oppressed!!!
